Doesn't this sound great????? Mark it on your calendars. It's a wonderful 2-day conference set in charming Salem, Massachusetts. Great schmoozing, great speakers, great martinis, and most importantly.....world-famous Penelope is giving her talk "Penelope Channels Miss Manners: How To Promote Yourself Without Peeving Everyone Off." You don't want to miss it!


Registration starts Dec. 1. I will post links when they are available.




Polishing her martini glass,

Last time I sent out query letters, about half of those agents and editors nibbled. I'd love to go meet them, and you! But when there is no money, there is no nothing. :(

Penelope said...

Lindsay...maybe you can drive down for the day on Saturday....for the book fair. I will email you some more details!
